I think one of the worst things about having dietary restrictions from food allergies and intolerances is the inability to partake in many holidays.  I’ve always had a love affair with food.  Then, I began to have some health issues and thyroid medication wasn’t touching some of my thyroid symptoms.  After a while, and having done some research, I determined I needed to try going gluten free.  Later, I learned I also needed to cut other foods out of my diet, and a major problem food was dairy.

For the first year, dietary restrictions were like a death sentence.  Gradually, though, I’ve found suitable replacements for most of my foods.  Still, holiday foods aren’t usually safe.  So, I end up making a plate of food for myself every holiday and rarely get to actually eat a real Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

This year though, I changed that.  I hosted Thanksgiving and made sure everything I made was safe for me.  I was going to eat like royalty and hopefully show people in the process that eating gluten and dairy free wasn’t as bad as anyone makes it out to be.  And, last minute, I decided I needed a gluten free and dairy free sweet potato casserole recipe.  Because, holiday meals aren’t complete without a humongous helping of sweet potato casserole.  If you don’t agree, I’m not sure we can be friends 😉
